WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) – Tea party activists are trying to energize conservative voters to propel Republican Christine O’Donnell to a victory in Delaware’s U.S. Senate race.
More than a thousand people gathered Sunday at a rally in Wilmington to cheer on O’Donnell and GOP House candidate Glen Urquhart, another tea-party-backed candidate.
The rally was led by the California-based Tea Party Express, which spent heavily on advertising for O’Donnell in her primary campaign against longtime congressman Mike Castle.
Biden is scheduled to attend a Democratic rally in Wilmington on Monday.
